Sermon text: Mark 11:1-11 On the first Palm Sunday Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem. This was in fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. We really don’t consider the donkey much in the whole panorama of the triumphal entry narratives. But we can learn a lot from this humble animal used by our Lord.
When Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey that first Palm Sunday, there were many ideas among the crowd as to who He really was. Most were looking for a political leader and deliverer from Roman tyranny. Others wondered how He could alter their personal lives for the better. A relative few saw Him as One who had a more heavenly mission.
Jesus rode triumphantly into Jerusalem on what we call Palm Sunday. Less than a week later those who cheered for him demanded his crucifixion. Christians need to realize that we will face opposition when we tell others about Jesus. We will ultimately be triumphant, but we must recognize the cost of discipleship.
